Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

100% of the artists involved will feel like they told their stories in a process that felt healing, safe, and rewarding. 95% of the audience surveyed will feel like their understanding of what theatre is and can be as well as the impact it can have has shifted. Gadfly will survey audience and artists as well as solicit post-performance feedback. We will also encourage artists and audiences to stay engaged moving forward and continue offering us insight and feedback.
